Hate on it all you want, but until you actually drive it and compare it to the other convertibles out there that are in the same price range you are just showing your ignorance. Ford did a great job on it. The interior has plenty of hard plastics, but they look good and are well executed. The seats are very, very good. The one I got was a loaded V6, so it had the leather and the upgraded stereo. I didn't spend much time with the radio on, but in that limited time it sounded pretty good. It has plenty of power for cruising with the top down and it's relatively quiet too. Overall, it exceeded my expectations. It is now completely understandable to me as to why Ford is cranking them out as fast as possible and why they are selling just as fast.
